I have been a enthusiastic customer of Maplin for some years now.
My original brush with this company was due to my interest in constructional electronics.
This required accuracy in supplying orders to a very high degree which was achieved in a very admirable way. Usually I received the jiffy bag the next morning so could continue building!
A brief sojourner in the Maplin shop in person or online will tempt the technologist/hobbyist/I've got some pocket money to spendist, badly!! Whatever you want there is a good chance that Maplin has got one if you're lucky it will be in a half price used sale and be extremely affordable (as I must admit a lot of my things have been :-)
if you are not so lucky hey pay the price you will not get rubbish generally from Maplin!
I would say, generally, that Maplin will have something for everyone and possibly something more for those like me technologists, like building things and making things work.
Maplin's constant cycling of stock through special offers can be very useful if one is looking at a new area. Yes I still find some things turn up next day much to my delight.
They used to have loads of tokens for money off offers, these have been replaced by the many discount offers. If you are stuck try ringing Maplin and ask a Mapliner as their friendly advice will probably sort you out if not will redirect your investigations.
If you can get into Maplin I have found most of the people you end up talking to are helpfulness itself - if they are not tell somebody as something is wrong.
I have bought a number of household appliances from Maplin with great effect.

No I am not being paid by Maplin :-) I am actually a genuine customer who has to look at other emails, rather than be tempted by looking at the Maplin's emails :-(
to sum this up I can safely recommend Maplin and its operations to you as a long-time satisfied customer I reiterate my comment if things aren't right for you talk it over with a Mapliner and I suspect things will get better :-)
my best regards John
Everybody knows Amazon, with their organisation, we should do :-) I am unsure how universal Amazon has become as the "purveyor of all" as far as I am concerned I will return their and know that I will come away with information if not a product.
Amazon are doing wonders with returns as well now so I will be buying my first online shoes once I can afford them!
If you can't buy the bits you want from Maplin. Try ordering them from Amazon and see what result is. Maplin is a hard act to beat as a fan of both I will not try!
The opportunities that are available using Amazon services means that many small manufacturers have a, got a captive market with worldwide distribution and advertising they can also make use of the Amazon machine for packing and distribution systems
